It's interesting

 To my knowledge neither Foucault  or Derrida ever acknowledged Guattari. 


Neither his role as a political figure  in any of the domains he worked in nor as a philosopher or co-author with  Deleuze . And indeed as the co-creator.


It was  so rare at the time, so undone (what guattari et deleuze were doing)  that these other men, Foucault Derrida,
being the fierce singular figures that they were could not 


recognize

the
difference

the doubloons doubleness

Deleuze acquired



by working and multiplyIng  (go forth and multiply!) with
Mister Felix
Guattari





this new type of alliance


But Deleuze, the old man
the older thinker
knew better
he saw further








(even if it turned that Foucault
didn't like Antioedipus)

(which we cant be sure
of because the biographies
of philosophers
are filled with half truths,
deceptions and conceptions
monstrous wooings
anxious forebodings
and jubilant
hopes
as are the lives
of poems

so fiction

is the true parameter
of 
life

as Michel Foucault
once stated
All my works are fiction
but that does not make them false')

(elementary my chère Claire
rudimentary  mon plus
proche
élève
et intercesseur
)

Recently a young woman inquired of me where would I begin reading the works of Deleuze and Guattari that you are so impassioned about?

I said read Antioedipus of course.

And listen to this music
or that music. But listen and read with your heart breath. But not your brain head. that come later books have their time.  Just like music of this sort has its time.
